Vintage Colorful Paper Mache Rabbit Candy Container 1950 Western Germany Us Zone:
This vintage papier mache rabbit candy container dates to 1950; according to my research, this would have been the year that Western (not West) Germany AND US-Zone would have been marked on items made for export. The rabbit stands 5 3/4" tall and is 5 1/4" long, as shown. It is in good vintage condition with one area of paint loss on one ear and a crack at the base of the other ear. The crack goes around the entire base of the ear, but it does not feel unstable. If it has been glued (not sure) it is an old repair and it is holding well. This is as I found it at an estate sale; I have not attempted any cleaning or repairs. The pinkish orange with gold on the one side is a striking contrast to the brighter orange on the other side. The tiny eyes are glass and are an amber color with dark pupils. Shipping will include insurance; you may choose from USPS Parcel Select or Priority Mail.
